.Life is like a chain of mountains: grand, strong; full of 
changing color; eternal. Our pathways take us up steep trails 
to the top, only to show us how far down we must go to reach 
the foot of the next ascent. There are many beginnings. 

This book is like a mountain lake reflecting the beauties 
of miniature worlds about us, and giving a perfect outline 
of the first real peak we have conquered. From now on we 
shall be mounting, always higher. We have left the foothills. 

May this Microcosm of 192.9 show us, as we turn to look 
back, a panorama of the hills in "our little world" over 
which we have struggled so valiantly together to success. 



Alban Bertram De Mille 

by whose beautiful thoughts and fine expression we are inspired; by 

whose rich personality we are charmed; and whose counsel 

we seek and value; to him we dedicate this book. 

To the Class of TS[ineteen Twenty-nine 

The lamp within the chapel shrine burns low, 

The young knight bows before his stainless shield. 

To-morrow he must venture far afield; 
To-night he dedicates, come weal or woe, 
Honor and love and faith to friend and foe. 

He lifts his head; the vigil-vow is made. 

No stain shall mar that shining shield and blade. . . . 
The day is come — he arms himself to go. 

So have you watched and waited. So at last 

The hour of parting strikes, and down the years 

You gaze, unknowing what the years may prove. 
Knowing but this: where'er your lot is cast, 

No shade shall dim the life that now appears; 

These shall not fail you — Honor, and Faith, and Love.

Jl ^Monument to John Simmons 

The life of a good deed is immortal; its sphere of influence 
widens as time goes on; and even if it has not a material monu- 
ment, it has something more vital if it creates within people 
an honored memory. 

When John Simmons first began to work toward his ideal 
of a vocational college for women, he could not have known 
that his work would have gathered such impetus from the 
start he gave it in 1867, when he made his will, that in 19x8 
and 1919 it would still be extending itself. 

As a monument to the life of its founder, our college is ever 
growing. The main building is even now being enlarged. 
What great changes may come in the future we can not even 
imagine; but no matter what the physical aspect may even- 
tually be, we can see the College as we spent our four years 
in it, as it was when we paid tribute to John Simmons.

(Technical Courses 


Household, Economics "Department 

The most interesting thing about teaching at Simmons College is to watch the change 
of attitude in students. Many students begin by doing their lessons because they are assigned 
or because they want to get a good grade. Then suddenly for most students some course comes 
alive and the subject seems worth working at for its own sake. Teacher smiles and says, "Miss 
is arriving, isn't she?" Alice Frances Blood

Library Science 

Library schools educate people in the general principles underlying library work, and the 
best standard methods, so that each person need not grope through similar problems in every 
individual library, but profit by the past experience of former experimenters. 

American libraries find women valuable staff members, and Simmons educates them to 

choose books wisely, arrange and catalog them well, and then make them available to men, 

women and children of the community. T n „

"Prince School of Education for Store Service 

In 1905 Mrs. Lucinda \V. Prince founded a school to provide adequate training for sales- 
people in department stores. This was the pioneer work done in educational lines in stores and

lege graduates for executive and personnel positions in stores or for positions as teachers and 
supervisors of Retail Selling courses in the public schools.

Secretarial Studies 

Today the candidate who applies for a position in a business office must demonstrate first of 
all her technical ability. Before she is promoted to an executive position she must show in ad- 
dition, general knowledge, initiative, and willingness to assume responsibility. 

The courses in the School of Secretarial Studies are designed with these two main objects in 
view — to provide a sound equipment along technical lines and a basic education in cultural 
subjects. Edward Eldridge

"Department of "Biology and Public Health 

A true appreciation of the lives we live can scarcely be attained without some knowledge 
of the laws behind the manifestations of life in ourselves, and in the multitude of living things 
about us. Our philosophy is profoundly affected by our background of information regarding 
organic evolution, the natural causes of disease, and the body as the residence of the mind and 
soul. The crowning triumph of the sciences is in the realm of improving the conditions of liv- 
ing, and the quality of life, itself, through an understanding of those factors that promote 
health, and prolong life in a continuing state of usefulness and enjoyment.

"Department of Chemistry 

To understand the spirit of science one must himself have studied diligently some one of 
its branches. The details which he must memorize, the particular deductions which he must 
draw from them, the experience of obtaining first-hand information by laboratory experiments, 
all of these may fade as time passes. If there remains, however, an appreciation that Nature is 
governed by fundamental laws which can be discovered by systematic search, carried on with 
absolute honesty, accurate observation, and rigid logic, the effort of studying chemistry will 
not have been in vain, and the object of the teachers in this department will have been fulfilled.

"How can you endure the monotony of going over the same subject year after year?" I am 
sometimes asked. But any teacher knows that it is the infinitely varying personalities of her 
students that give color to her classroom work. "Stout Cortez" never had a thrill comparable to 
the teacher's joy when she discovers a student who can grapple with a new idea.

English "Department 

Believing that English is both a practical and a humane subject, the English Department 
has always set itself two primary objects: to require of its students correct and readable written 
English, and to introduce them to the best thought of the race and of the world. As a second- 
ary object, believing that the principles of all of the arts are the same and that nothing adds 
more to the enrichment of life than appreciation, it has taught English as a form of art.

T)epartment of History 

"The times are out of joint; oh cursed spite 
That I was ever born to set them right. 
Hamlet's trouble lay in his self-centered and short-time view of life; extreme optimism often 
arises out of the same intellectual limitations. The balance wheel of a gas-engine keeps the 
motor turning smoothly, checking a too enthusiastic response to each explosion and preventing 
a "lag" between these isolated impulses. Without a balance wheel of historical knowledge, hu- 
man life becomes an unreasoning alternation between optimism and despair.

''The Mind is Stimulated by Movements of the Body" — Pliny. 

The role that is played by properly applied developmental gymnastic work is an important 
one in the hygiene of modern life, particularly modern urban life. 

The value of preventive and corrective physical aids in the developmental periods of 
youth, and the dehnite benefit which follows the use of recreative and corrective forms of 
exercise in the strenuous life of the college student places Physical Education in the forerank 
of importance. Florence Sophronia Diall

The outstanding need of our era is the effective development of the social and humanistic 
sciences to a point where their influence on social behavior will be manifest; to develop in the 
individual a capacity for and a will to cooperative endeavor, to understand and direct the 
now dormant and unrealized human capacities for life with enjoyment which are rendered impo- 
tent by ignorance, superstition, and prejudice. To this general aim the courses in Psychology 
are dedicated. Harrison LeRoy Harley

"Department of Tublic Health Ts[ursing 

The public health movement is no longer concerned merely with the sanitation of the 
environment and the control of acute communicable disease. Increasing emphasis is being 
placed on improvement of personal hygiene; improvement that can be brought about only by 
the slow process of educating the public in principles of healthy living. Such education cannot 
be accomplished by mass methods alone; it requires a teacher of health who can bring to each 
individual personally the help he needs. In this country the public health nurse has become the 
health missionary; she is the field agent upon whom depends to a large extent the carrying out 
of the various programs for community health. 

The ever widening public health field demands nurses with sound fundamental education 
and technical training. Simmons College is helping to meet this need through its School of Pub- 
lic Health Nursing. Marion McCune Rice

Simmons College founded the first full-time School of Social Work in America in the fall 
of 1904, and graduated the first person to get a baccalaureate degree in social work after four 
years of study in 1907. 

Although the school does not guarantee to place its graduates, nevertheless, throughout 
its history it has never been able to meet the demands made upon it for workers. The field of 
social work offers advantageous openings for persons of ability who are professionally trained 
to meet its responsibilities. Mrs. Eva Whiting White

School of Landscape ^Architecture 

The School of Landscape Architecture is one of the newer professions, broadening in scope, 
and peculiarly fitted either as a vocation or as an avocation for women. Founded on engineering, 
on architecture, on a love of growing things and an appreciation of beauty, its practise develops 
both the individual and the community into a fuller and happier life.

In the death of Miss Babcock, Simmons College lost not only an inspiring 
teacher and loyal friend but a beautiful character. Hers was an exhilarating 
■personality, optimistic, self-forgetting, and brave. She was by temperament 
conservative, but her love of the old never made her blind or hostile to the new, 
and although she lived imaginatively among the Greeks of the fifth century, 
she had not lost her enthusiasm for the Americans , and especially the youth 
of the twentieth. Probably never in her life did she once ask, "How little can I 
do?" but always, "Hoiv much!" Her courageous spirit was a rebuke to the 
shiftless and the time-serving, and an inspiration to the deserving and honest. 
It is a great thing to be able to say of any one as can be said of her, "She never 
spared herself.

of these. Individuals never become intermingled with the proletariat 
throng, and we feel it suffices to say that Eva's excellent characteristics, 
feminine charm, and benign smile will make us remember her as an

Suspicions about the S. G. Treasurer are confirmed. Those long col-

plainly duress on the part of the Treasurer. Such unlawful conduct is a 
direct result of undue affection for the red ink bottle, the ruler, and neat 
and buxom numerals. Our verdict now condemns her to a career of 
wealth, brilliance, and effervescent enthusiasm.

Just watch Esther's eyes and perhaps you will know what is going to 
happen next. Beneath her calmness and poise is a volume of fun as you will

Virginia May Britting 


We would not ask 1918 to give up her claim on "Gin" Britting. But 
1919 welcomes her with open arms. Realizing the aspiration which 
prompted "Gin's" return to Simmons, we are proud to remember her 
among our own. Honorable, dependable, kind, friendly to all, she is a 
valuable member of any group. Her misfortune in being ill became our 
fortune in having her graduate with us.

Alice Joan Broadbent 

She gives you an impression of reliability and honesty. Her placid

Her zeal begets peace of mind at exam time. Mere trips abroad cannot

however, and you can always be sure of a warm welcome.

Every time life becomes too monotonous Phyl always starts things 
with the familiar "Let's go out to camp". More than once that little 
slogan has saved the day. If her library is near the camp she can be sure 
of a large patronage. Just imagine a librarian with a disposition like 
Phyl's. Probably she'll have a five-foot shelf on camp and camp life.

Although Sarah "grew up" during college and is now sporting a

Freshman year. How will she ever thrive out of Boston and away from 
the quartette after college? As an interior decorator Sarah has great 
promise — what would Appleton House have done without her? She will 
soon be gracing the portal of some famous library.

and how to make a sewing bag. But it won't be long before she herself 
will be planning breakfast for two.

She's little, with huge brown eyes and a darling smile. She has a fine

the rest of us mortals except that she possesses those virtues for which 
the rest of us long in vain.

and it would seem the men like it from the hordes of telegrams, bids

that famous "uninterested, indifferent attitude."

Was Grace well-named or has she lived up to her name? Who knows? 
At any rate, it fits her very well. She has that charming grace which

which is subtly implied in her name. And she is always called Bud!

"V "Kink" 

V hails from North Wilbraham and knows its library to the last 
book. She has a way of acquiring knowledge without being a grind, and 
yet she really acquires it. Playing cards is one of her favorite pastimes — 
no matter what the time of day or night, she is always at it. A keen 
sense of humor is one of her possessions also, together with a large 
group of friends.

no matter how early in the morning we reach fourth floor, she is always

Academy, for Betty is a person truly representative of what that society

When you read the penetrating criticisms of the book-reviewer in the

Alice is individuality plus. She is gifted with a keen wit and hidden 
depths that are always revealing new ideas. Her imperturbable calm is 
to be admired. It may be that the typewriter will aid Alice in her 
literary peregrinations for her power of imagination, her stock of original 
thoughts, and command of English spell achievement.

excellent seamanship or dashing out at eleven-thirty to see what 
sounded like an accident! For a talk-fest, sympathy, jollity and good- 
nature, see Ellen.

There is little time lost between start and finish when Maggie does

Sincerity, truth, dignity, and cheerfulness are quite essential to a real

posing of her hours, it is time for someone to enter on a research prob- 
lem in order to determine the formula. Is it concentration or an ability 
to pick out the important things and disregard the rest?

Everyone seems to know and admire Tytee, either the brisk business-

peppy, jolly Tyt always ready for whatever good time comes along — 
whether it's mountain climbing or dancing. She has an inborn ability 
for successfully accomplishing things and this, together with her 
originality, should carry her far.

We never know Naomi is around until we hear a high-pitched little

either out on one of her many dates or home to Gloucester for the week-

Adelaide Ullian 

The babv of the class in age — but one of the most dignified seniors 
that ever awed a green Freshman. One always finds her in moods of 
intense interest — be it debating, socialism, drama, journalism, or

seems fit for something different or unusual than just an ordinary

Esther reminds one of a picture of older days, a demure maid w r ith

Class of 1 929 

Who can say that '19 isn't one of the very finest classes ever graduated? In fact, 
who can say that any one of Simmons' classes is not splendid? But just to show that 
we are not seeking idle, empty praise, we can show you what records we are leaving 
behind us. And in so doing, it behooves us to show what capable, active, and worth- 
while girls have made '2.9 what it is. While it is not worthy to eulogize oneself and 
one's achievements, neither is there virtue in hiding one's candle under a bushel. 
If, therefore, in leaving with you a record of our accomplishments, you will take heed 
and set for yourself a goal beyond this, then our efforts will have further justified 

Never did a more verdant group of Freshmen grace the corridors of Simmons than 
we, when we entered in 1915. We are firmly convinced that since our admission, the 
entrants grow yearly less juvenile and more sophisticated. After selecting a comrade 
or two, we gradually oriented ourselves, though not without the help of the Faculty 
Orientation Program, and our Freshman Bible, which was virtually a Prayerbook 
to us. When we were sufficiently established, elections were held, and Miriam McKay 
was elected president. It was a fortunate choice, as shown later, when at midyear 
elections, she was unanimously re-elected, an honor hitherto unknown. It is with 
regret that we recall the names of many, that year prominent among us, but since, 

The Freshman Frolic proved a source of merriment and delight. Remember Pat 
McEvoy as Topsy? Florence Randall certainly deserved the prize she won for the 
funniest costume. The success of this party was due to the efforts of the several enter- 
tainers, and Sunny Eaton, Chairman. The Freshman-Junior Picnic, held at the beach 
at Marblehead proved a very successful get-together. We certainly grew to know our 
Junior sisters on that occasion. Knickers and bare feet usually do make people feel 
more intimate. 

Track Day that year was not without its thrills, for Marion Raymond won the 
individual cup, also the archery cup. This reminds us that the basketball champion- 
ship for that year went to '2.9 and the tennis singles honors to Marjorie Oettinger, 
ex-'i9, and the doubles to her and Alleine Phillips. Many girls started at once to 
work in various clubs and societies. Came the finals, as they say, and off we scampered 
to summer diversion. Thus endeth the chronicles of year one. 

All things must end, vacations especially. Recalling — or was it anticipating the 
"Ode to Duty" — we returned as Sophomores. This year we started immediately under 
the leadership of El Schuyler to "do things." The struggle over the rope in Ghost 
Walk was absolutely nil when compared to the mental and verbal battles over the 
class ring. And, we are now glad to say, the good old S. C. won, changed only by a 
bit of hammering in some cases, symbolic, no doubt, of the struggle for its very 
existence. We are just beginning to realize that S. C. means more than "sweet child" 
and other nicknames. That settled, we thought it prudent to keep up with our big 
sisters by having a sort of prom for ourselves, which we forthwith named the "Sopho- 
more Shuffle". May we have a tiny flower from a bouquet for this? It is now an annual 

In athletics we duplicated most of our previous records, adding the archery tourna- 
ment and the award for Track Day costumes, with Mary Geddes chairman of this 
committee. Marion Raymond received the individual basketball cup. 


"""** M ICU0)COSM^^ 

Sophomore Luncheon was all we anticipated. Harriet Gilbert was an efficient and 
charming chairman; "Rube" made us giggle as she toasted the things one properly 
toasts; while Thelie Coombs in her orchid dress "cut quite a figure," with the pussy 
all dressed up in a bow of the same color. The entertainment was in the nature of a 
prophecy, but due to the excitement of having our pictures taken, some of us didn't 
hear of our fate until several days later. And speaking of pictures! remember how 
funny the girl next to us looked? 

May Day dawned cold and wet; we dawned likewise, to watch the pantomime of 
the "Sleeping Beauty." Strange to say, we almost forgot our discomfort while en- 
joying the entertainment and helping the strawberry shortcake to disappear. We 
have Jo Mang, ex-'zcj, to thank for everything but the weather; she was chairman. 

This event was followed by elections, and the Sophomore-Senior Picnic. Barbara 
Bowen headed this excursion. Like the Shuffle, it was a first attempt, and proved very 
successful. Again, we tackled finals, this time with a sly wink; we knew we'd come 
back. So we departed, leaving Rube Snow Chairman of the Junior Welcoming Com- 
mittee, as well as president of the class. During the summer we heard who our fresh- 
man was, or were, in many cases. Sometimes, we wrote very motherly letters, con- 
taining much advice based on the experiences of our own colorful past. 

September of 1917 saw us back again, this time as genuine upper classmen. During 
Freshmen Week, however, we learned, to our utter disillusionment that we were not 
upper classmen to the fullest extent because we could not command meek and lowly 
"uncosmeticated" freshmen to carry books and run errands for us with any degree of 
success. And, all this time, we were doing our best to show Boston to our sister class. 
How many of the scenes illustrated in this book did you proudly point out as Boston's 

Field hockey took up time in the fall, but our record in that sport is not quite equal 
to that made in basketball. After winning the championship for the third consecutive 
time, we had the basketball cup given to us permanently. That record has not been 
achieved since 1914. It seems as though some people just can't miss a basket, 
while others of us could not even put the ball in a waste basket on the first try. On 
Track Day, we again were fortunate in receiving the costume award, thanks to Helen 
Kabisch's designing it. Marion Raymond won the individual cup for the third time. 
Have you ever seen her do her famous broad jump? No wonder she is the lucky member 
of our class to wear an S. A. A. blazer, the only one in College now. 

Our ability, however, is not all one-sided, as you can see by referring to the list of 
Academy members, as well as S. A. A. About twenty girls were initiated in November 
from the class of '19. Perhaps you think we weren't proud. 

During this time, too, we were able to produce several remarkably good actresses. 
As a matter of fact, "Joint Owners in Spain" drew the prize in the Class Play Competi- 
tion that year. Janet Cohn has won our applause in a great number of college perform- 
ances. Betty Madden, too, has "played her part." Both of these girls coached the 
Class Plays this year. Back stage, also, there are stars that shine, and thunder that 
rolls. Aren't the stage hands and officials fascinating in their uniform (overalls, in 
case you have missed the sight)? 

Junior Prom was one of the outstanding events of the year, principally because that 
is the one thing all juniors live for. Many of us still carry our attractive white-kid 
pocketbooks that were our favors. The men's favors seemed highly appreciated also, 
as was shown by the way many were pressed into immediate service as cake boxes. 
Mary Geddes certainly did a splendid piece of work, with her committee, in planning 
such a perfect affair. The senior serenade was touching; even the men admitted that. 
Most of the girls and their escorts went in groups on house parties the following day, 
everywhere from Maine to Cape Cod. 


""^ MICDfUmSM** 3 *- 


Senior year started with a swish and a flutter as the most high Class of 192.9 marched 
through the vast corridors of the great institution in flowing robes and with majestic 
mien. Ah! Well, that is just the way we felt. Even the thrills of commencement could 
not surpass the excitement of our first public appearance as full-fledged seniors in our 
caps and gowns. 

Edith Carter was elected President of Student Government, and an excellent one 
she has been. It was our pleasure that she went to the Student Government Convention 
in Missouri just before Christmas. Marion Spearin took the Class President's Chair 
this year. We can be proud of all our officers this year as we have been of those of all 
of our four years . 

Senior Housewarming, as usual, turned out to be a Hobo Party. Never was such a 
motley horde collected. Try as hard as one could, no power on earth could imagine 
one of those picturesquely tattered tramps in stunning silken prom gowns. We can also 
whisper that much dignity was lost in the antics of certain individuals participating 
in such contests as cracker chewing and dressing in strange, knotted garments. We 
thank Fran Zink for this revelation; she was chairman. 

Another of our achievements is the revival of the MIC Show. This year it was a three- 
act play written and directed by the editor of Microcosm. By their applause, the audi- 
ence indicated that MIC Show had staged a most successful comeback. We hope that 
the future classes will do their part to re-establish the tradition of presenting a show 
of some kind, whether it be a musical one, such as the one of 1916 was, or one like 
"Sally's Stand" of 192.9. 

During the fall, along with other things, we were busy with field hockey again. 
Fran Sondergard was so busy with it that she won the individual cup — just one more 
of Fran's achievements. Speaking of athletic honors, we are proud to have four wear- 
ers of the S right in our midst. Marion Raymond, Florence Haynes, Alice Haynes, and 
Barbara Partridge are the girls. That, of course, is not the only award, for we have 
twenty-two in all wearing some kind of S. A. A. insignia. Again we won the basket- 
ball championship, which means the team was undefeated after four years playing. 

Later, Sally Redfern was elected Senior Prom chairman. That means another de- 
lightful prom. This year it seems has been very full of dances, but we are glad, for 
who knows when we shall get to another Simmons dance after June when we scatter 
to the far corners of the earth. 

Before closing, we feel that we must mention the fun we have had putting bricks in 
the new wing — theoretically, of course. A circus, a rummage sale, pledge cards, per- 
sonal services of all kinds, and a thousand good wishes; that is the way in which we 
have aided the new wing. We are glad that it wasn't done before our time, or too late 
for us to help actively, because we feel that it is partly ours, and that part that is ours, 
we are glad to pass on to those who are coming. 

Now, we ask you, you who have read this chronicle, don't you really think 1919 is 
"a grand old class?" We have done our best to make Simmons proud of us, and we feel 
sure that even if we have not set the world on fire, we have kindled a spark of admira- 
tion and respect in the heart of our Alma Mater.

Student Government is the one organization in which we all take part. Here are 
united faculty, undergraduates, and graduate students; the whole college joins in the 
work of this body. 

With such a membership, the work is carried toward the one great aim of forming 
the policies, maintaining the integrity, carrying out the details, of student life at Sim- 
mons. It is a high purpose for which to strive and one that wholly merits every par- 
ticle of interest, cooperation, and assistance its members give to it. 

Since the membership is so large, the actual details of student government, legisla- 
tive and executive, are delegated to the Student Government Council — a body of 
eleven girls representing each of the classes. In its weekly meetings, the work is carried 
on in as responsible, as representative, as live a manner as such problems certainly

Eleanor Snow

The purpose of Dormitory Council is to consider whatever problems may arise in 
any of the various college houses throughout the year. The members are the House 
Seniors and House Chairmen, so each dormitory is represented. Every week in North 
Hall this body meets to discuss rather informally the affairs of the "residential Sim- 

In recent years Dormitory Council has adopted the Simmons Code, with a few minor 
variations, as we know it today.

All the reports of Student Government Council, Dormitory Council, and Judicial 
Board find their way to the Dean's table for the final action of Conference Committee. 
They are discussed; carefully considered; and, upon being accepted, immediately put 
into effect. 

Composed as it is of both faculty and students, Conference Committee supplies 
Student Government with the mature judgment of its faculty members. Student Gov- 
ernment greatly appreciates their friendly aid and loyal cooperation, and is grateful 
for their valuable services.

Judicial Board, as is inferred by its name, is the judiciary body of Student Govern- 
ment. It is an advisory body to whom anyone may go for help and advice. This board 
with the help of Conference Committee passes decisions on the offenders of the vari- 
ous social as well as academic rules of the College. It aims to spread a uniform inter- 
pretation of the "honour system" throughout the Faculty and Student Body. 

The four class presidents, a Sophomore and a Junior representative of Student Gov- 
ernment Council, and the chairman comprise this body. The President and Vice- 
President of Student Government are ex-officio members.

Academy is the honorary society of Simmons College. There is need, in a technical 
college such as Simmons, of stressing the importance of academic and cultural studies. 
From the President's report of '09-' 10 comes this quotation, "In a place like Simmons 
where the trend is ever more and more away from the academic and intellectual the 
idea of keeping one's wits as nimble as one's fingers has tremendous potential signi- 

Monthly meetings, to which an outside speaker is invited and which are open to 
the entire student body help us to keep in mind the cultural side of college life. The 
speaker at the November open meeting was Walter Pritchard Eaton who spoke on 
"Going to the Theatre in America." The neucleus of the new debating society devel- 
oped at one of the Academy meetings.

The Christian Science Society was formed for the purpose of giving the student body 
an opportunity to learn about Christian Science. To its members it brings a fuller real- 
ization of the value of friendship and cooperation and an increased love of friendship 
for all the students. 

Testimonial meetings are held on each Tuesday of the college year to which all 
students and faculty are welcome. One lecture on Christian Science is given each 
year by some member of the Board of Lectureship of the Mother Church, the First 
Church of Christ Scientist in Boston. 






Simmons "Debating Society 

President Mildred E. Robie 

Vice-President Ruth Tartakoff 

Secretary Eva Chase 

Chairman of Programme Committee .... Adelaide Ullian 
Faculty Adviser Miss Wilson 

The latest infant activity at Simmons takes the form of a debating society, which 
has been organized to fill a long felt need. Like all debating societies, its chief purpose 
is to train members to think on their feet, and to speak with ease. The society holds 
weekly meetings on Friday, the fifth hour and, once a term, have formal open debates 
on subjects of interest to the college at large. It is hoped that the society will improve 
enough to make it possible to compete with other colleges in the near future.

Ellen l^jchards Club 

President Esther Kimball 

Secretary-Treasurer Claire McTiernan 

The Ellen Richards Club tries to promote an interest in science and to encourage the 
feeling of friendship among its members. Open meetings are held throughout the 
year to stimulate scientific interest among the student body. 

An innovation this year was a meeting to which alumni in different branches of 
scientific work were invited in order to tell us about their work. Dr. Harley spoke at 
one of the open meetings. 

Other activities were initiation for the new members, a picnic, and a bridge.

Forum is a dormitory organization which aims to keep the students in touch with 
world affairs. In order to accomplish this, speakers are invited to talk to the girls. 

Several interesting speakers were secured for the senior dormitories, among whom 
were Mr. Joshi, a Hindoo, studying at Harvard and interested in student welfare. An 
interesting talk was given by Mrs. Kim, a Korean, who also is interested in student 

The Sophomore dormitories were fortunate in securing the following speakers: 
Miss Sharpless, who spoke on "World Peace;" Mrs. Sargent, who gave a talk on her

The Simmons Home Economics Club aims to bring the girls of the Home Economics 
School in contact with the business field in order that they may know the various 
positions available to girls with home economics training. 

In order to accomplish this, monthly meetings are held at which a representative 
of Business, such as Miss Fielbald of the Crawford Hollidge Tea Room, speaks to the 
club. Each year a representative of the club is sent to the national convention. A tea 
is given at which the Sophomores of the previous year are admitted to membership. 
The Club is financed by food sales at Hall table and in the dormitories.

Menorah tries to bring to the Hebrew students of Simmons a fuller realization of 
the romance and poignancy of Jewish tradition and closer friendship among its mem- 
bers. It is organized for study and open-minded discussion and believes that univer- 
sity men and women should prepare themselves for intelligent participation in the 
solution of Jewish problems. 

The activities this year have been many and varied. They include a bridge to welcome 
the Freshmen, joint meeting with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Menorah, 
dramatic meetings, and a formal dance. The club also took part in an intercollegiate 
Menorah meeting at which Dr. Arlosoroff spoke.

The aim of the Simmons College Musical Association is to make Simmons College 
well and favorably known in intercollegiate musical circles. To all who like to sing, 
the club offers splendid opportunities for worthwhile, pleasant recreation. 

The joint concert with Harvard in Symphony Hall on April u was the chief event 
of this year. On March i we gave a concert with Middlebury in the Refectory, with 
dancing afterward. On account of the concert with Harvard the membership of the 
Glee Club was increased to two hundred.

Newman Club is the organization which brings together all the Catholic students 
at Simmons and offers them religious, educational, and social opportunities. The 
Simmons Newman Club belongs to the New England Province of the National Feder- 
ation of College Catholic Clubs. It is one of the most active organizations of its kind, 
and has long been considered extremely successful in its efforts to carry out the ideals 
of its Patron, Cardinal Newman. 

This year, in addition to the annual formal dance, bridge, and teas, Newman took 
part in a retreat for college girls, which was given at the Cenacle Convent in Brighton. 
The club also acted as hostess at a tea which was given for the New England Province 
of the National Federation in order to interest some influential Catholics of Boston in 
the work of the Catholic Clubs.

Unity Club provides an opportunity for all Simmons' students with liberal religious 
views to meet for open discussion. It welcomes all students who truly desire to discuss 
religious matters from a liberalistic standpoint. 

The most important happenings in the history of the club this year is the chang- 
ing of the name — from Unitarian to Unity Club — and the drawing up of a constitution. 
The joint meetings with the Town and Gown Club have been a continued success. 
The club also sent two delegates to the Intercollegiate Conference.

The Simmons Y. W. C. A. tries to make full and creative life possible for all people. 
In order to do this, it has tried to interest the students in our sister college, St. Chris- 
topher's, in Madras, India. Y. W. is not an exclusive organization but welcomes all the 
college to its activities. 

The organization has been very fortunate to have Miss Brockway, president of 
St. Christopher's and Miss Eipe, a graduate, visit the college. In addition, Y. \V. has 
had the usual group activities. Social Service work at Welcome House, teas, Student- 
Industrial and Inter-race meetings at the new student headquarters, and a series of meet- 
ings with Dr. Nutting of the B. U. School of Religious Education have all combined 
to make an interesting vear.

Chairman of Dramatic Committees . . . Kathryn Markstein 
Faculty Advisor Miss Ruth Lansing 

Although there are always certain outstanding members who appear again and 
again in the Dramatics Club's performances, nevertheless, new talent is always to be 
found. Several who had not appeared before pleasantly surprised us in the big play 
and the class plays. 

Miss Mesick expressed the opinion that she has never seen a finer selection of plays 
on the Simmons stage than has been shown this year. She also feels they were par- 
ticularly well done. In fact, she thinks that it has been the most successful year that 
she can remember for the Dramatics Club. 

Janet Cohn, well-known for her own excellent acting, succeeded in imparting that 
same ability to the Junior cast which won the prize in the competitive plays in March. 
Genevieve Young was accorded the best individual actress. Competition was unusu- 
ally keen.

This year the staff has undertaken to introduce several innovations. Some of them 
may prove entirely superfluous; others may find favor. But, there is only one way to 
find out whether one's schemes and plans are fruitful, and that is to try them out. 

The new pay-day plan was instituted to help everyone. It has, too. Its shortcomings 
are to be remedied another year. The short "interview" with the head of each 
department in the Faculty Section should give something of the spirit of the depart- 
ment. And, finally, the art theme was designed to bring back to you memories of 
your college city. They are pictures of our "Microcosm."

No organization will benefit more by the editorial room to be in the Wing than 
Press Board. The Simmons' correspondents of the various Boston newspapers are always 
on the alert for news about students, faculty, and alumnae. It is through them that 
Simmons receives its publicity. 

One of the most interesting spots in college is the bulletin board where the clip- 
pings and pictures are posted. If the students at large keep these reporters notified, 
then we can let the world know that Simmons occupies an important place in colle- 
giate circles.

lishing articles, stories, and poetry written by students, alumnae, and members of the 

This year the annual poetry contest was supplanted by a prose contest, which 
brought forth many interesting manuscripts. The illustrations, which are growing in 
number, serve to make the magazine more interesting than ever.

The Simmons News has for its purpose the reporting of college — primarily Simmons 
College — events, thought, and opinion. Its news, editorials, and features all center 
about this ideal. Because it is the medium of expression for the schools, classes, social 
groups, as well as the individual student, the duty of the News is to bring some meas- 
ure of unity to the College.

Athletics at college offer a wide choice of sports and an opportunity for dormitory 
girls and commuters alike, of all classes, to come together in the spirit of fun. Tennis 
tournaments, fencing matches, the games for the hockey cup in the fall, and for the 
basketball cup during the winter term and with Track Day in May — all give oppor- 
tunity for class spirit and individual rivalry. In addition to these sports, there are 
archery, life-saving, riding, and golf. 

This year the college managers have been: 

Hockey .... Kathryn Markstein Riding Ellen Wood 

Basketball . . . Kathryn Markstein Track Barbara Partridge 

Tennis Leslie Wetterlow Archery Doris Franklin 

Fencing. . . . Frances Ford-Smith Golf Marion Henriquez 

The hockey cup was won by the class of 1930, and the individual cup by Frances 
Sondergard of 1919. The basketball cup went to the class of 192.9 for the fourth year. 
They have never lost a game in all four years. Tennis singles were won by Darrance 
Chase of 1931.

Freshman Frolic 

Our first party after we cut the maternal apron string! Who will deny that some 
looked too young to be allowed out of mother's sight, to say nothing of going to a 
party? We were too innocent to be afraid, however, and besides, some of us were al- 
most grown up. One boy wore long jeans and a girl had a long braid. We noticed they 
joined the rest of us when we played drop-the-handkerchief, London Bridge, jump- 
rope, and marbles, though we wore rompers and rag curls. 

We really used our new-found liberty very well except when we ate ice cream and 
lollipops in the morning and between meals. Those were given to us. What else could 
we do? We suspect now that they were part of a hardening process against pickle and 
ice cream at midnight. 





Track Day 

n)i6 We have not put away childish things even though Freshman Frolic is over. 
Today we had another chance to romp under the guise of an athletic exhibition. It was 
great fun and our pyramids were clever, if we do say it ourselves. How we surprised 
all those high-hat upper-classmen by walking away with the athletic honors. We'd 
have had the prize for the costume, too, if we hadn't been required to wear gym 

igzj This year we grew tails and ears. And of course we were catty enough to think 
the costume prize belonged to us. Anyway, we had the pleasure of watching another 
freshman class perform, but we still retained our athletic prowess. 

itjiS This year we became most ferocious looking tomcats (like those in the pic- 
ture) both in appearance and agility. We had to be; because next year we shall have 
to attend in mourning — our caps and gowns — . And though I hopped and jumped to 
show those young fry that "there's life in the old bird yet," I realize now that the 
college yard has seen another old cat die. 

— From A Line A Day. 




Sheeted figures writhe and twine, 
Clammy serpents chill the spine. 
Shiver, ye who view the line, 
Ghosts walk! 

Sophomores, seeking vengeance dire, 
Tear their prey from hearth and fire, 
Drag them screaming through the mire. 
Ghosts walk! 

Juniors now must pay the price 
Of haughty mien and proud advice, 
Now cry for mercy, meek as mice. 
Ghosts walk! 

A vengeful evening ends in fun. 
The tug o' war is never won. 
With food and drink the feud is done. 
Ghosts talk!

Sophomore Luncheon 

A stranger dropping in might think it some important birthday party. Lavender, 
sweet peas, and pink roses decorate the tables. Snowy linen and gleaming silver seem 
to signify delicious food. Lavender ribbons issue forth from the fern in the center of 
each table as from some great Jack Horner Pie. On the head table stands a black cat, 
"monarch of all he surveys." 

Now two hundred or more girls are seating themselves and at a word pull the rib- 
bons, to discover gold rings bearing an S. C. Now they are eating; now they listen to 
toasts and speeches which they seem to enjoy heartily. Now a man with black mous- 
tache reads a poem on "rose-colored glasses." 

It is a birthday party, explains the stranger's mentor. The class of 19x9 of Simmons 
College celebrates its coming of age. They have now earned the right to be considered 
members of the Simmons family, and the privilege to wear the symbol of the member- 
ship, the Simmons ring. 


""-'* MIC^COSM^^- 

Sophomore ZMay "Day 

"^L-iZj Seniors, get up, get up." So sang the Sophomores in quavering voices on 
May Day morning. We could well taunt the Seniors for their drowsiness, for we were 
proud of our own will power. Astronomers say that the sun rises every day, but there 
are some who still doubt that it rose on that morning. A heavy, wet blanket of fog 
enshrouded the campus. Little chills of self-righteousness chased up and down the 
limbs of the Sophomores as the more strongminded Seniors drizzled out into the 

It is one of the cruel facts of life that humans enjoy seeing their fellows suffer worse 
than they. On this occasion the audience were much amused to recognize the fairies 
tripping on the green in the usual diaphanous costume. Great was the admiration 
for the Spartan courage of our King and Queen, who watched the revels of their 
subjects with unfeigned pleasure and chatterless teeth. 

The familiar fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty was enacted with one variation from 
the original. Instead of being put to sleep, the Beauty had been transformed into a 
lifeless form of marble which needs must be thawed into life by the Prince's kiss. 
The actors proved their ability to perform under any atmospheric conditions. The 
traditional strawberry short cake was well received. It fulfilled the function of all 
good food by restoring drooping spirits to the point where life is considered worth 



The Weddings of '29 

1 92.9-1917 

Boston, October 1925 

One of the most brilliant triumphs 
that this city has seen for many seasons 
was the wedding this morning of Miss 
192.9 to Mr. 192.7, both of Simmons Col- 
lege. The bride, who was charming in 
pure white satin with a train which 
was regal in length, was preceded by 
two flower girls, her nieces, and fol- 
lowed bv her maid of honor and four 
bridesmaids all in pastel shades. It was 
breathed that the ushers were of the 
gentler sex, but that is difficult to 
believe in view of their handsome 

Both bride and groom are of large 
families. Refectory Hall was filled to 
the doors with Twenty-Seveners and 
Twenty-Niners. After a dainty wedding 
breakfast the newly-married couple 
departed amidst showers of confetti to 
a destination not divulged. It was gen- 
erally believed, however, that both 
bride and groom are at present too busy 
with their careers to leave on an extended 


Boston, October 1927 

The wedding of Miss 192.9 to Mr. 192.7 
at this time two years ago was equalled 
in brilliance and interest by the mar- 
riage this morning of Miss 1931 to Mr. 
192.9, twin brother of Miss 19x9. It was 
very fitting that Rev. Dr. Schuyler, who 
has long been a friend of the 192.9 fam- 
ily should officiate on this first Saturday 
after his installation. 

Again Refectory Hall was filled to 
capacity with the families of the couple. 
Notwithstanding the large number, 
however, a breathless silence reigned 
during the ceremony, broken only by 
Dr. Schuyler's fine voice and the some- 
what tremulous but earnest voices of the 
bride and groom. 

Only as the procession passed through 
the door did the quiet give way to a 
buzz of admiration. "How beautiful" — 
"the bride" — "that gown" — "hand- 
some ushers" — one heard only snatches. 
And, as the couple drove away, the cry: 
"Too busy for a honeymoon — these 
modern ways." 



Freshman-Junior Ticnic 

"For it's always fair weather when good fellows get together." That this is truth 
was proved by the Freshman-Junior Picnic of 1918. Fouler weather from the point of 
view of a sailor could not be known. The Nantasket boat nosed her way through a 
grey screen. Rain come down in sheets, but all unwitting, we danced to the tune of 
the orchestra within. 

Those adventuresome spirits who cared naught for wind nor weather were rewarded 
later, however, when the sun came out and convinced the owners of amusements that 
it would be profitable to begin their season. It is said that two daredevils went in 
swimming. We have no casualty records to prove this. 

A basket lunch and a second boat ride this time on a choppy sea concluded the after- 
noon. The motion of the boat beneath dancing feet was not unlike the unexpected 
waves in the Refectory floor. In short, with Chappie playing, one felt quite at home. 





Soft words murmured, gentle laughter, 
Faces drifting by, 

Melody floating, low tones wafted. 
Tints of sunset sky. 

High, sweet voices loved airs singing 
Senior Serenade. 

A snatch to hold those moments fleeting 
Only memory stayed. 




Senior Housewarming 

"Hallelujah! I'm a bum 
Hallelujah! bum again — " 

These words which were part of the battlecry of the deputation from cell 13, ex- 
pressed fitly the humor of the entire Tramp's Convention. Hoboes from every corner 
of the world, hoboes from every walk of life were represented at this great meeting. 
Many who had been forced by modern culture to lead a life which by baser mortals 
is called civilized, reveled in the chance to consider the bigger and deeper things of 
life. For there was a purpose other than that of sociability; namely, the house- 
warming of North Hall. What ceremony could be more fitting than an expression of 
what is sacrificed by those who live in houses! Doubtless, too, those present bade a 
sad farewell to that carefree wanderlust of undergraduate days. 

Weighty problems were solved that night, such as how to eat soda crackers with- 
out water and how to dress quickly in clothes which may have been dropped sud- 
denly by a railroad track. Doughnuts, cider, cheese, popcorn and apples were given 
with no such request as "Saw the wood back of the house" until many a tramp 
complained that the corners of his square meal hurt him. And then, he took to the 
road again singing, "Hallelujah, I'm a bum!" 




Ye ChriHmas "Dinner 

'Come one, come all," the heralds call. 
'Come dine in our ancestral hall, 
And fete the merry Yuletide." 

The guests appear from far and near 
To share the boar and sip the beer. 
They eat with knives, nor think it queer, 
For 'tis the merry Yuletide. 

The boards gleam bright with candlelight; 
They see Saint George the dragon fight, 
And carols ring throughout the night 
Of that first holy Yuletide. 

The baron's bride there by his side 
Gives parting: "May you joy betide 
And wholesome health and peace abide 
On this and every Yuletide."

*A thousand Years From TS[gw 

One day 

I met the old March wind 
A whirling down the Fens 
In his own accustomed way — 
Says he — 

'I wonder what will be 
A meeting me 
A thousand years from now?" 

'Will the old Dame's dome 
Still crown the hill 
And the tall young spike 
Of a custom house 
Still stuff his ears 
As he hears me pass 
A thousand years from now." 

Tis not that I care particularly" 
Says he to me confidentially — 

'But oh, for some lady's clothes 
For me to blow; 
Heaven grant me those 
A thousand years from now!" 

M. E. R. 






I'm my mama's darling. 

I'm as good as can be. 

I've helped to win the naughty war, 

But oh! I'm modest, dear me. 


Please don't think, dear Reader, 
I'm really so bad as that. 
But what can you do when the editor 
Runs off with a terrible "snap."

(As Sally Simmons Sees It) 

A. School of Household Economics 

This is more commonly known as the Diamond Ring Course. It is planned primarily 
for women who wish to keep house after they are married; to teach young children 
how to do the work; to write articles for the Home Ec. column in the News; to lecture 
on subjects of general interest, such as: "The Use of Alaskan Wheat in Making 
Raised Biscuit" and "Influence on Cake Making at the height of 3937^2 feet above 
Sea Level of using flour made from Mexican Wheat;" to make children's clothes last; 
plan layouts, and trim bonnets; to be consulting dietitians to Eskimos, planning bal- 
anced rations of seal blubber, whale meat, and reindeer moss; to compute grams of 
carbohydrates for domestic animals; to entertain with ease, conducting meals com- 
fortably in spite of difficulties in dealing with green maids; to preside at buffet lunch- 
eons with dignity; and to discuss with ease any subject while carving gracefully at 

This is the most rounded out and round-about course that Simmons has to offer. 
Practise work makes perfect all points emphasized in lectures and textbooks. Field 
work is provided under the auspices of the S.S.P.C.F.C. (Simmons Society for the 
Prevention of Cruelty to Fellow Class Mates) by the distribution of laboratory prod- 
ucts among students in other courses. The four year programme or more leads toward 
the degree of B.S. (Butchered Scholarship). 

B. School of Secretarial Studies 

The programme in this course combines academic and cultural subjects with those 
of a technical nature. After completing four years of this course, a student should 
know how to take orders at the rate of 1x5 words a minute and transcribe them into 
action at the speed required by her instructor or employer. Office training is practised 
during frequent visits to the Dean's Office and Room 12.5. Cultural background is 
supplied by attendance at lectures and classes given in and about the college building 
and institutions on the other side of Massachusetts Avenue. 

Graduates of this school are placed in excellent positions shortly after graduation, 
that is, from one to fifty years. The types of jobs offered are varied, and those filled 
are unique. There are former graduates now filling positions commanding large sal- 
aries and great prestige. An example of such a position is secretary to the treasurer 
of the Association of Future Women Office Holders. This is very lucrative, especially 
when the treasurer herself is away. The hours generally range from 11 until 1 with 
an hour out for lunch and from 1 to 6 with the afternoon off. Remuneration is, of 
course, a secondary item. One young woman received $11,000, payable at the rate of 
$1,000 a year. Some girls receive board and lodging, and a few clothes (very few) 
while occupying honorary positions accompanied by the degree MRS. 


"^ MirD^msM 8 ^ 


During the second term of the senior year, most of the students are sent downtown 
to concerns in order to gain experience in such duties as sealing envelopes, folding 
letters, typing, dusting books, and taking orders. 

C. School of Library Science. 

There is much demand in the library field for well qualified college women with 
at least one year of systematic study of library science. The demands come chiefly 
from public, college, and school libraries, but also from antique shops, prisons, and 
psychopathic wards. 

The types of work are diversified, including story-telling (prevaricating) the dust- 
ing of shelves, the sorting of waste paper, and other nerve-racking occupations. 

The range in the choice of positions and salaries is very wide, especially in the case 
of those who, upon completing this course, decide to follow other lines of work. 
Any students who contemplate finding enviable positions and earning fabulous 
salaries are doomed. 

Admission to the School is limited to women not over seventy years of age. 

General Prerequisites 

A woman who thinks of becoming a librarian should consider what are the desirable 
prerequisites in intellect, physical strength, disposition, tastes, habits, and character. 
Therefore among the traits desirable are: audacity, irresponsibility, ambidexterity, 
inertia, and ability to juggle piles of books. 

The best preparation begins in a home which is a regular recipient of Hearst's pub- 
lications, and where "Cupid's Diary" and "Confessions" are perused. Such a back- 
ground should be supplemented by illiterate surroundings. One who looks forward to 
being a librarian should have had past experience in the violent and destructive use 
of libraries and library property. The amount of such experience cannot be too great. 

Good health is important. The chances are ten to one that the first year of library 
work will produce at least a nervous breakdown, or St. Vitus dance. It is, therefore, 
advisable to be physically fit in advance. Setting-up exercises are strongly recom- 
mended. Librarians should keep early hours, retiring not later than 5 a.m. during the 



History 1,2,3 

A course aiming at the development of an apprehensive background in the student's 
mind. It is correlated with Foods 1, 1, 3 and Dietetics 400 by a study of the Diet of 
Worms and location of Frankfort on the Main. 

English 434 

Appreciation of Comic Sections. Reading, discussion, imitation, and evaluation. The 
main object is to find the real meanings and allegories of seemingly obvious comic 
strips. A study of color and its significance is advised. Reports will be required on 
such masterpieces as Harold Teen, Tom Sawyer, etc. 

Assistant Professor O. Ima Wiseguy. 

Design 100 

This course plays an important part in teaching the principles which enable the 
students to make their beds smoothly, comb their hair straight, keep notebooks in 
order, and make out registration cards legibly. 

Housebuilding 100 

Starting' with the study of Pyramids in Egypt, the student completes the course by plan- 
ning castles in Spain. The course provides a foundation for future appreciation of 
Ruskin's Essays on the Gothic. 

Accounts 4SY2 

Accounting Theory and Fiction. A study of the fundamentals of bookkeeping with sup- 
plementary lectures from the library if kept too long. Practice in keeping entries on 
the back of postage stamps is also given. The Income Tax is touched upon and 
studied from the "Ask Me Another" point of view. Double entry system is used — 
in many cases triple, quadruple, and octagonal until the idea is mastered. 

Professor C. P. Ackountente. 

Management of the Household 100 

A course broad in its field of application, teaching one how to manage the home and 
its members, how to get rid of household insects, how to outfit a kitchen on $70.00, 
how to differentiate between Axminster crockery and Dresden carpets. Cooperation 
with the department of physical training has been secured in waxing floors and wash- 
ing windows. The student gains an appreciation of the art of plumbing by an excur- 
sion along the piping system of the practise house. 


~ as3 Mirn^rnsM*^ 


Biology i 

A simple course in the study of the bugs one may expect to find in lettuce, spinach, 
cauliflower, and beet greens. The first part of the term is spent in studying butter 
and eggs. The term ends with a study of the preparation of animals for cooking, frogs 
being used because the time is too short to allow for larger animals. 

Foods I, 2, 3 

The student is introduced to the simple methods of food preparation — boiling of 
water, dropping of eggs, crumbing of bread, souring of milk, pulling of candy, and 
identification of spices. Hours are dependent upon the student's individual speed at 
dishwashing, her usual good luck, and her housekeeping duties. 

Any Student who receives marks above 99 44/ioo%is admitted as anhonorary mem- 
ber to the S.M.U.S. (Simmons Museum of Unique Students). 

Typewriting 04 

Touch Typing. This system is used entirely. There is no other way. (Have you ever 
tried to type without touching?) Copy work is done in Latin, Greek, Russian, and 
archaic Hebrew. The original is English but the copy is usually transcribed into the 
above by beginners. The use of carbon is taught and excused. Tabulations are given 
attention; they need it. Erasing is practised, many methods being used, smudging 
and scrubbing being the most popular. 

Miss Hunt, Miss Pick, Miss Take. 

English 264 

Commercial English. Open only to students who have successfully completed at least 
one other English course. Sales letters are studied and practised, selling such articles 
as gas stoves, garters, fur coats, and raspberries. It is a good opportunity to solve your 
father's business problems free. House Organs are also studied. (See Biology 1 and 
Music 13.) Writing copy for advertisements is another point taken up. Wrigleys, 
Listerine, Old Gold, and other classics are used as models. Mailing lists are compiled 
for Xmas cards, proms, and piano movers. 

Professor M. I. Willing. 

Library 41, 42, 43 

Cataloging, Bibliography. The most minute and confusing instructions are given as to 
the making of entries, cross references (extremely cross!) and subject headings. After 
completing this course, each student should feel intimately acquainted with each and 
every author, editor, and translator; so much so that pleasant familiarities, such as 
strangling or drowning, may be indulged in upon meeting said genius. Also, the stu- 
dents should feel qualified to cope with any book which may come into their hands. 
Disregarding a natural desire to bathe each volume in the Charles, they should read 


^^ MirnArncM^ 



the title page with eager avidity, and copy — AS IS — with the exception of such minor 
details as: imprint, edition, series note, etc. (Incidentally, the catalog cards composed 
by Simmons graduates must always be distinguished by decorations in the form of 
blots and visible erasures.) 

A very negligible portion of the time is spent in scanning various bibliographies, 
chiefly foreign ones. This is undoubtedly a favorite course with the students. Much 
amusement is derived from the quaint foreign phrases encountered in these books. 
Problems are assigned, which provide a diversion reminiscent of the cross- 
word puzzle, and the "Ask me another" fads. The foreign bibliography course is guar- 
anteed to give one a swearing acquaintance with every known language. 

Associate Professor See, Miss C. Also. 

Library n hj, 15 hf. 

Classification. The art and science of classification is studied, especially as applied to 
the classification of books by the Dewey Destructive, the Cutter Exhaustive, and the 
Library of Confusion classification systems. This course tends to make the student per- 
fectly unable to place a given book in any of the known 2.60 million classes. No libra- 
rian is properly equipped for her work unless she has pursued this course. It enables 
one to note all the illustrations, read most of the jokes, and scan several chapters of 
every book considered in the laboratory periods, for classification. In this way the 
students acquire a wide knowledge of literature of every kind — a knowledge which 
will be of great service to them in later years.
